It turns out the gcl-2.6.7 tarball is there in "zips", so I just edited
the Makefile for 2.6.7 and it's now building. Meanwhile, I would
actually like to use one of the installed Lisps on my systems to build
Axiom -- I have a choice of SBCL, Clisp, GCL (and CMUCL but only on the
32-bit systems). Normally I just install SBCL because it works with
Maxima and the Lisp music codes I run.
